Chemistry Postdoctoral position(s) available in the Carroll lab (www.scripps.edu/carroll/) in the Department of Chemistry at The Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter, FL (www.scripps.edu/florida/).
The Postdoc will address one of two major themes in the lab: 1. Developing chemical probes to study cellular mechanisms of redox-dependent signaling, and/or 2. Developing small-molecule inhibitors that block sulfur metabolism for preclinical evaluation as antibacterial agents.
What we do: Our recent activities are summarized on the website: www.scripps.edu/carroll/.
• You are holding a PhD in chemistry or related field.
• You have a strong expertise in organic synthesis, with a publication record demonstrating independence in research focus.
• You have the ability to communicate clearly in writing, as well as verbally with a diverse set of collaborators.
• You have a strong team spirit and excellent interpersonal skills.
• You are familiar with cell-based assays and basic molecular biology techniques.
• Applicants with experience in redox chemistry and/or medicinal chemistry are strongly encouraged to apply.
Eligibility: Completion of a PhD is required by start date.
How to apply: Applications will be accepted immediately and candidates will be considered until the position is filled. To be considered, all applicants must submit a cover letter, CV, a one page “Research Statement” describing research experience and how this aligns with the focus of the Carroll group, and the names/phone numbers of three references. A single PDF document should be sent to Prof. Kate Carroll (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Salary will be commensurate with accomplishment, fit, and experience.
Keywords: Synthetic organic chemistry, chemical biology, chemical probes, small-molecule inhibitors, post-translational protein modifications, redox regulation, oxidative processes and stress, cysteine thiols, cancer, antibiotics.
The environment: Located in Jupiter, Palm Beach County, Scripps Florida provides a rich intellectual environment and cutting-edge facilities for its researchers, who conduct studies at the forefront of basic biomedical science, drug discovery, and technology development.
